correspondent for the hill, amy parnes. chief correspondent for mcclatchy newspaper steve selma. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> steve, why don't you head on up here? i'm going to begin with amy. i want to read you part of speaker boehner's op-ed on fiscal cliff negotiations. if we're serious about getting our economy moving again, solving our debt, and restoring prosperity for american families we need to repeal obama care and enact commonsense step by step reforms to start with lowering the cost of health care. would democrats consider putting any part of the president's signature health care legislation on the table to negotiate? >> no. it's just not going to happen. i mean you remember last year, democrats wouldn't -- refused to budge on this issue. they're not going to do it again. president obama's out there, all campaigns saying health care is law now. now that he's in office again for a second term, there's no way this happens. it didn't happen last time. it won't happen this time. >> so then, steve, i thought he said affordable health care act was the law of the land a couple wee
campaign manager steve elmendorf and former gingrich senior adviser david winston. good to see you both. >> good to be here. >> david, something else speaker boehner said moments ago, as you know, congressman tom cole broke with most of the rest of republicans saying, look, we should just take the tax breaks for people making under $250,000 a year and worry about the upper-income folks later. john boehner just said no, he doesn't agree with that. what do you think's going to happen here? >> well, the next couple weeks as we begin to sort of lay out these sort of contrasting positions that the president and the speaker have, look, what the spoker's focused on here is, yes, we obviously need to raise more revenue. there's a disagreement in terms between the president and the speaker in terms of how you do that. the speaker's looking at doing things that he believes will not negatively impact the business community, and he thinks what the president is offering will. and so how they work through and resolve that is obviously going to be central to a deal. but there's clearly at this point a
that's not right out of rush limbaugh's dream journal. >> here is steve schmidt breaking down the election problems last week in a bite that sent rush limbaugh into a terror. better off running against the real president obama as opposed to the sinister pretend president obama, and the total lack of credibility with some of this stuff i think is just absolutely repellent to the middle of the electorate. and then when you look at the demographics, who is rush limbaugh talking to? he is talking to a demographic that's white, 65-plus, and rural. that's not what the country looks like anymore. so you have these talk radio hosts making millions and millions and millions of dollars a year, driving a message of complete and total ludicrous nonsense into the electorate, a lot of it poisonous. >> here is rush responding to that little gem right there from steve schmidt. >> you got to get a view of the republican party that is not right out of my dream journal. what, folks, did i or any of you have to do with the republican primary? did not murphy get the candidate he wanted? all these
in congressman steve israel, a democrat from new york, and chair of the democratic congressional campaign committee. congressman, good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> u.n. representative cole sent a letter to president morsi asking him to refrain from giving hamas cover to intensify its attacks by allowing egyptian delegations to visit gaza. of course, morsi has been a major player in these truce negotiations. do you think he's sending a mixed message? >> well, he is sending a mixed message. you know, i hope that president morsi is able to play a constructive role. but when high-level delegations of egyptians go into gaza under the pretense of a cease-fire and then terrorist groups violate that cease fire, if israel were to defend itself and members of the delegation was tragically hurt in that attack, we do not want that to be used as a pretense to violate the egyptian/israeli peace treaty. one other thing on this, chris. look, there's a fundamental truth here. i was on the border of gaza and israel in august of 2005 when israel unilaterally and without any preconditions left gaza. a
right now to cnbc's steve sedwood live in london with us. steve, what's it looking like over there? >> it's looking pretty good. i haven't even started my holiday season shopping. i'll leave that right till the last moment. what is really fascinating is every single survey i've been reading about the whole thanksgiving holiday weekend has been positive about spending in the u.s. why is it so important? it's important because 70% of the u.s. economy is centered around consumer spending. so it's absolutely key. now, we're used to black friday spending. and that was good this year. it was up about 12.8% to 59 billion u.s. dollars. we know about cyber monday as well. when everyone goes back to work, apparently goes back to work and sneaks onto their computer and continues to spend the likes of amazon and ebay were doing very well. as indeed walmart who's had a cracking holiday season so far. what is less well known is the small business saturday. this thing's only been going about three years. in every single state, it had a real rubber stamping from authorities to try and get people s
? >> reporter: well, steve, most importantly, starting at 2:00 p.m. as you mentioned israel stops all military action in israel and hamas stops launching rockets on israel and carrying out border attacks on israeli troops but this is the key thing. there is no signed formal agreement here. instead, israel and hamas reached an understanding, a kind of exchange of quiet for quiet. the first phase of a broader agreement. that should be followed by more intense negotiations, those will be anchored and guaranteed we understand by egypt and the united states. to try to resolve the key demands on both sides. of course, for hamas, the lifting of that 6-year-old blockade of gaza. for israel, it's stopping all the weapons smuggling. but neither will happen immediately. at least, however, they have agreed in principle to these demands and the need to work them out. you had a clip of secretary clinton. she went on to call the cease-fire deal a step in the right direction. she said she looks forward in the days ahead she said to consolidating progress for the people of gaza and israel. and experts are sayi
security adviser steve hadley. >>> plus a new wave against president morsi. >>> and two indianapolis colts cheerleaders save their hair in support of their coach's fight against leukemia. >>> good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. congress is back. grover norquist's tax pledge could be history. and all eyes are now focusing on house republicans as talks to avoid going over that so-called fiscal cliff are picking up steam. joining me now, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc and ruth marcus, columnist and editorial writer for the "washington post." to you, mark, what is your read about what we've been hearing the last couple of days about grover norquist, the pledge and how much running room the speaker does have to b negotiating a deal. >> i did a spit take with my fruity pebbles watching "morning joe" because eric cantor's tone was unlike anything i've ever heard. his office is saying oh, no, he's against raising marginal rates, but it's clear that in the scheme of things, the biggest piece is does john boehner have enough running room to strike a deal i
staying than not, steve. you are right. but this could be one of the last meetings that comes amid a flurry of activity here at the white house. the president mounting this public relations campaign. you know, he said washington has to be changed from the outside. you can't do it from the inside and trying to put those words to effect. they have really got the pr campaign going. they started a twitter campaign. they call it my 2 k and you know today it was small businesses from around the country. actually, that's a little bit later. with fix the debt. the coalition of large and small businesses later today. this morning, he met with a lot of middle class folks that written in to the white house at the solicitation of the white house and folks saying they would be adversely affected by the $2,000 and added taxes that would come next year alone for the average family of four if the nation is to go over the fiscal cliff. you know, there was one republican, you talked about the glimmers of hope for a compromise. it's tom cole of oklahoma who was quoted yesterday and this morning sayin
in congress. >> harry reid moves towards the nuclear option to stop the obstruction in the senate. steve benan joins me next on the latest on the filibuster showdown. >> the emphasis on benghazi has been publicized. >> first thomas risks rolled fox news. today fox news responds by trying to smear thomas risks. >>> and the right wing bubble on the economy bursts again e. >> the president's economic policies have failed. the american people know it. >> i have a new term. it's called obama noma. he's such a cancer to the economy. >> to call this an economy is an insult to recoveries. >> the numbers don't lie. we'll lay them out for you, tonight. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin u
the nuclear option to stop the obstruction in the senate. steve benan joins me next on the latest on the filibuster showdown. >> the emphasis on benghazi has been publicized. >> first thomas risks rolled fox news. today fox news responds by trying to smear thomas risks. >>> and the right wing bubble on the economy bursts again. >> the president's economic policies have failed. the american people know it. >> i have a new term. it's called obama noma. he's such a cancer to the economy. >> to call this an economy is an insult to recoveries. >> the numbers don't lie. we'll lay them out for you, tonight. >>> thanks for staying with "the ed show" tonight. the story goes to the heart of what we deserve. if we elect someone to the senate, we expect them to do what? get something done. unfortunately the republicans have been using the filibuster to block legislation. now the democrats want to change the rules to keep the next group of republicans from doing the same thing. we'll talk about those changes in a moment. first republicans have used the filibuster and really used it as well. it
in helping this come to pass. i want to bring in congressman steve cohen, democrat from tennessee, hussein senior fellow of the american task force and heather, former special adviser for president clinton and the policy planning team, now executive director for the national security network. this is my take away from the incentives that have been created in the region. hussein, i'm curious. as someone who is a very outspoken advocate for a two-state solution, if this is how you see things as well? >> i think, to some extent. >> feel free to disagree. >> i tell you where i did disagree, i think overall, your analysis is correct. the structure that has been created does, certainly, encourage palestinians to think negotiations, diplomacy and cooperation are a dead end and all the p.a. has to show for efforts are not being able to pay salaries of public employees which they pay in west bank and gaza except two months back. israeli settlement is continuing in all of that. as you said, they have little to show for their general approach of trying to reach negotiated agreement. i'm not sure that
can thank his stellar campaign team led by steve wolordson, the chairman of the national turkey federation and raised this beautiful bird at miller farm in harrisonburg, virginia. here's steve. and as always, if for some reason cobbler cannot fulfill his duties as the official white house turkey, gobbler will be waiting in the wings. from here, these two -- from here, these two lucky birds will be swept up in a whirlwind of fame and fortune that will ultimately leave them to mt. vernon where they spend their twilight years in the storied home of george washington and later today, michelle, malia, sasha and i taking not so lucky turkeys to a food bank here in washington, d.c. i want to thank jandyl farms in pennsylvania for donating those birds and like to ask every american to do what they can to help families who are in need of a real thanksgiving this year. tomorrow in the company of friends and loved ones, we will celebrate a uniquely american holiday and it's a chance for us to spend time with the people we care about and to give thanks for the blessings that we enjoy and to
things are getting a bit tougher. let's bring in david and steve. happy thanksgiving, guys. thanks for getting up early with us. >> good morning. >> first one to you, david, the staffers have told politico that these talks are off to a rough start and issue is, it's the same, the revenue, how to get it. what congressman tom cole said on "jansing and company" yesterday. >> important as to how you get that revenue. i was disappointed to see leader pelosi say it had to be higher rates or nothing. i don't think that's the way you begin a negotiation. >> what about the possibility of keeping the same rates but eliminating deductions for the wealthy in. >> i think that's a good potential suggestion. >> so you hear that, republicans have opened the door to revenue but not by raising taxes. is that going to be enough? might that be the compromised point? >> if you listen to the white house and top democrats it might not be, because they're saying, i think treasury secretary geithner said the other day that's not enough money. president obama starting negotiations at $1.6 trillion in revenu
is heading back out onto the trail. he does know he won, right? >> i'm steve kornacki. for me of us it's home for the holidays. you get a rare chance to see old friends and distant relatives. the bad news is you get a chance to see old friends and distant relatives. >> i'm making a pledge to my friend grover norquist. you're in "the cycle," and you have my word it's going to be good. >>> the case against ambassador susan rice as a successor to hillary clinton deepens. she went to the hill today to smooth it over with senators mccain, ayotte and graham who criticized her original comments on the deadly benghazi attacks. i picture the conversation between the president and rice going like this. we want you as secretary of state, so go make nice. answer their questions so they stop attacking you and threatening to block your possible nomination. yeah, so how did that work out? >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. it is clear that the information that she gave the american public was incorrect. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than
. here is steve king with how president obama's mother managed to convince us all that her son was born in hawaii, not in kenya. >> i looked into that before he was sworn in for the presidency. we went down into the library of congress and we found the micro fish there, only two in hawaii. each had published the birth of barack obama. it would have been hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of barack obama being born in hawaii. there doesn't mean there aren't other ways they could have announced that by telegram from kenya. >> maybe she neglected to consider that naming her son barack obama might be a problem for her son's future run for the united states. have a great holiday weekend! in. [ basketball bouncing ] heart healthy. great taste. mmm... [ male announcer ] sounds good. it's amazing what soup can do. with his wife, danielle, almost every weekend. derrell hasn't been able to visit his mom back east in a long time.

. sorry, steve, slope isn't as dramatic. this is a tease. >> i'm steve kornacki and i wouldn't do that. the person we turn to for answers when the arab spring first sprung. >> i'm krystal ball. it's so secret it has to be hand carried from office to office. it's a story the administration divided on one of the most controversial tools. >> i'm susan del percio. s.e.'s on assignment. >> you're in "the cycle" where anything can happen. we're back to work here on "the cycle" today and congress is slowly making its
of this attitude. and now they're just looking like a lost cause. joining me now is steve car kna krystal ball. why doesn't the gop look to chris christie assist a role model? he's the most popular person in their party right now? >> hopefully some in the gop do. you have to remember that a lot of people, a lot of folks in the republican party were very upset with chris christie for being so bipartisan, for -- for daring to compliment the president for his responsiveness in hurricane sandy, so there's still some upset there over that. you know, i think the other thing this points out, you were mentioning, chris christie underscoring how important bipartisanship and cooperation is to voters. the other thing i think it underscores is how effective government is important to voters. peel saw him doing a great job handling hurricane sandy and republicans for so long have been the party of obstructionism, of doing everything they can to keep government from working. that's the other message. people to want see a government that actually works. >> and a government that deals together in crisis, when some
will be scrutinized. you have to take the good with the bad. >> steve, what do you think the chances are we see the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president
and the other liberal hosts like me here on msnbc. and yes, that means steve schmidt and michael steele and meghan mccain, who we've been able to bring on board officially here at this network, but also, everybody else on the right, who was willing to come on just as a guest, because you are not afraid to leave the echo chamber. i will not say your name here for fear it will get all your christmas party invitations rescinded from your friends on the right. but you know who you are and i thank you. and i hope there are more of you next year. i'm thankful for c-span. i'm thankful for the election that we just went through. and i'm thankful that it is over. and that it really, really, really, i swear, it really is too soon to start talking about 2016, for a long time, it will be too soon to talk about 2016. i am thankful for that. and for the fact that through this flawed and contested, but ultimately noble system of regular elections and representative democracy, what we have in this country are peaceful transitions of power. i am thankful for all of that. and you know what, i am thankful
and giving speeches. >> joining me now is new york democratic congressman steve israel. sir, great to have you with us. mitch mcconnell saying the president should be speaking to members of his own party. interestingly enough, moments ago we heard from someone within mitch mcconnell's party, speaker john boehner, saying he thinks a deal is possible. take a listen. >> it's time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has. but i'm optimistic. >> he's optimistic. we also have boehner saying he is disagreeing with tom cole, one of the few republicans who have come out to usual his party to strike a deal. right now, get this done. keeping the bush tax cults for 98% of americans, give up on keeping tax cuts low for the wealthy, 2%. take a listen to what cole on capitol hill had to say moments ago. >> in my view, we all agree that we're not going to raise taxes on people who make less than $250,000. we should take them out of this discussion right now and continue to fight against any rate increase, continue to try to work honestly for a much big
they connect back with kris tie in the future. >> third on the to-do list, encourage steve king to stay in the house. he is a republican congressman from iowa and a tea party favorite. why urge him to stay in the house? >> he is a long time congressman from iowa but not -- in the senate race in the state is up in 2014 and he is thinking about running. the problem is as we saw in some of these recent senate elections some of the more conservative tea party candidates didn't do too well in the general election and if steve king ran, he might be a favorite in the party primary but he would have a hard time winning a general election appealing to a more broad base of voters and my colleague interviewed the governor of iowa, the republican governor, terry branstad who all but urged him to stay out of the senate race. >> and michele bachmann, another tea party favorite. >> it is amazing how michele bachmann's star shining so brightly in the presidential race now barely hung onto her house seat in the last election and she has been talked about as a possible senate challenger to al franken in
idea of a worst-case scenario. birtherism with a twist. iowa u.s. congressman steve king with how president obama's mother managed to convince us all that her son was born in hawaii, not in kenya. >> i looked into that before he was sworn in for the presidency. we went down into the library of congress, and we found a microfish there of only two newspapers in hawaii. each of them had published the birther barack obama. it would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of barack obama being born in hawaii. that doesn't mean that there aren't some other explanations on how they might have announced that by telegram from kenya. the list goes on. >> by telegram. i guess she neglected to consider, the mother, that naming her son barack hussein obama might be a minor setback for her son's future run for the presidency. of the united states. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. have a great holiday weekend. a restaurant is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at
in congressman steve cohen, democrat of tennessee. ka treata. and a senior fellow at the american task force on palestine. which advocates for a two-state solution and heather hurlburt, former member of the clinton state department foreign policy planning team. now executive director of the national security network this is my take-away from the set of incentives that have been created in the region. hussein, i'm curious, as someone who is a very outspoken advocate for two-state solution, if this is how you see things as well. i think to some extent -- >> feel free to disagree. >> i'll tell you where i did disagree minorly. i think overall your analysis is correct. the incentive structure that's been created does certainly encourage palestinians to think that negotiations, dipsy, cooperations with israel is a dead end and all that the p.a. has to show is not being able to pay the salaries of public employees in west bank and gaza, except from two months back. and israeli settlement activity continues in all of that. they have little to show for their general approach of trying to reach a neg
are so far over i will argue they make the republican party look whacky and loony as steve schmitz said the other day. >> i'll tell you would -- go ahead, erin. >> i was going to say let's go back to dan's first comment. dan is a smart guy but that was naive of him to say. look, no one liked mitt romney to begin with. people don't like mitt romney now. he had a good first debate and so people thought, oh, maybe he actually has a chance. but the republican party never liked mitt romney 37 they never felt in love with him. he happened to be the establishment guy who was going to get the job. you look to the 2016 field of republican candidates and a lot of the electorate loves those people. like marco rubio. the electorate loves him. i'm sorry, i think dan was very off on those comments. >> chris, there's something deeper here we haven't talked about -- >> let's start with something simple. let's assume the republican party wants to rebuild and to be a four quarter offense, they want to compete in the northeast, southeast, midwest and the west. let's assume that. are you saying rubio is a
're going to do it my way or no other way? we're going to raise it to 90 -- to 39.6%. steve rattner had a great column yesterday. >> it's a must-read. >> you know there's more than one way to skin a cat, more than one way to raise over a trillion dollars in revenues. it doesn't just have to be the president's way. is the white house going to insist on the 39.6% tax rate, or will they consider the loophole part of it plus capital gains, plus a couple of other things? >> well, it looks to me like the white house has learned something over the course of the last four years which is that you don't start a negotiation by negotiating against yourself. >> right. >> you know, the president's taking a hard line right now because he feels as though he campaigned on this issue pretty strongly for the past year. but the president has been willing to compromise on a lot of things in the past and, you know, it's right for him to stake out a tough negotiating position and then maybe make his way to a less strident or a less -- not strident -- but a less -- a more flexible position down the road. >> yo
.s. congressman steve kg with how president obama's mother managed to convince us her son was born in hawaii, not in kenya. >> i looked into that before he was sworn in for the presidency. we went down into the library of congress and find a micro fish there of two newspapers only two newspapers in hawaii, each of them published the birth of barack obama. it would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of barack obama being born in hawaii. that doesn't mean there aren't some other explanations of how they might have announced that by telegram from ken yashgs the list goes on. >> by telegram? i guess she neglected to consider the mother naming her son barack husain obama might be a minor setback for her son's future run for theresidency of the united states. these people are loony. from mitt romney's 47% video to president obama's debate disaster in denver, the biggest turning points in the general election. you're watching "hardball" the place for politics. >>> i'm craig melvin. here's what's happening. protesters have taken to the streets of egypt after presi
